Top Five Faves from the…

Wine Cask Futures Tasting

1) Beckmen 2005 Grenache Purísima Mountain Vineyard: A bold,
chewy red overflowing with plum, blueberry, caramel, and
oak. Blended with a little syrah, it’s nothing short of
exceptional.

2) Westerly 2005 Estate Sauvignon Blanc: Westerly and sauvignon
blanc are practically synonymous. This is a rich, lemon- and
citrus-infused dose of the Santa Ynez Valley.

3) Happy Canyon Vineyard 2004 Barrack Ten Goal: A new standard
for bordeaux varietals. A blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot,
and cabernet franc, it scores with flavors of blackberry,
raspberry, and spice.

4) Clendenen Family Vineyards 2004 Tocai Friulano: This Italian
grape presents flavors of herbs and wildflowers with an elegant
backbone. You may have never heard of it, but you’re going to want
more.

5) Carhartt 2004 Estate Merlot: With hints of watermelon,
cherry, blackberry, nutmeg, and cola, the Carhartts have
elevated the merlot stepchild to a beloved family member.
